The way is full of care and strife 
Along this weary way of life 
Sometimes troubles overwhelm 
And we can barely keep the helm 
And oft times everything goes wrong, 
And hard it is to sing a song; 
Then the path just grows so steep, 
We lay aside our work and weep. 
'Oh, should this old world treat us so 
When so far we yet must go?" 
We seem to hear a voice say, "No, 
The dark clouds soon away will go, 
And bright blue skies will then break through 
And life with joy will start anew." 

E. R. 



Miss Ramsdell 
whose interest, 

and teachings 

have made 
our lives richer. 









To the Class of 1931 

I have chosen to give you my message in the "Song of the Brown Thrush." 
May its inspiration help 3'ou to success and happiness through the days of 
your years. 

"This is the song the Brown Thrush flings 

Out of his thicket of roses ; 
Hark how it warbles and rings, 
Mark how it closes : 

"Luck, luck, 

What luck ? 

Good enough for me! 

I'm alive, you see. 

Sun shining, 

No repining; 

Never borrow 

Idle sorrow; 

Drop it! 

Cover it up! 

Hold 3'our cup ! 

Joy will fill it, 

Don't spill it ; 

Steady, be ready. 

Good luck! " 



Thought is deeper than all speech 
Feeling deeper than all thought; 
Souls to souls can never teach 
What unto themselves was taught. 

We are spirits clad in veils 
Man by man was never seen. 
All our deep communing fails 
To remove the shadow^' screen. 

Heart to heart was never known. 
Mind with mind did never meet; 
We are columns left alone 
Of a temple once complete. 

Like the stars that gem the sky 
Far apart though seeming near, 
In our light we scattered lie 
All is thus but starlight here. 

What is social company 
But a babbling summer stream? 
What our wise philosophy 
But the gleaming of a dream ? 

Only when the sun of love 

Melts the scattered stars of thought ; 

Only when our souls are fed 

What the dim-eyed world hath taught. 

Only when our souls are fed 

By the fount which gave them birth 

And by inspiration led 

Which they never drew from earth. 

We, like parted drops of rain 
Swelling till they meet and run. 
Shall be absorbed again 
Melting, flowing into one. 

Christopher Pearce Cranch.

"Live to the Truth'' 

If I have caught the meaning of this age-old Framingham 
tradition, it speaks of sincerity of spirit, of earnestness in obedi- 
ence to the right, of intensity of effort, of resolution to succeed, 
of joy in achievement. 

Love your work with all its opportunities, privileges, and 

Trust 3'ourselves. your abilities, and your ideals. 

Dare to be yourselves ; many are good followers, few ven- 
ture to be original. 

And so, in the simple realities of loving, trusting, daring, 
serving, "give to the world the best you have, that the best 
may come back to you." 

Francis A. Bagntall. 


To the Class of 1931 

"Wherever you go, j'our shadow falls 
on others, and they are either better or 
worse for j^our presence." 

J. R. Miller.

Sir Thomas Browne. 

3n ilemortam 

Birth, July 23, 1843— Death, May 6, 1931 

Beloved Principal, Educator, and Friend 
Principal of Framingham State Normal School 1898-1917 

(Written just before his death for the 1931 Dial) 
"The highest success comes from hard work, always 
an honest purpose, and a high character." 

Henry Whittemore. 

Mr. Henry Whittemore was principal of the Framingham Normal School for 
nineteen years, from 1898-1917. His great work for the school had its inspiration not 
only in the breadth of his vision and his understanding of public school work, but 
also in his appreciation of and his desire to further the growth of the Alumnae Asso- 
ciation of the school, already a strong organization when he became principal. 

Mr. Whittemore became president of the Alumnae Association in 1916 and re- 
mained its president up to the time of his death. His desire was to have every grad- 
uate of the school become an active, contributing member of the Association, and 
for every class to be be a participating, contributing class in its tenth, twenty-fifth, and 
fiftieth anniversary years. 

It was Mr. Whittemore's kindly, personal interest in each of his students and 
in every graduate of the school, his never-failing memory of her, her name, and her 
work that endeared him to all. Perhaps the thing which Mr. Whittemore did that 
the present girls of the school enjoy more than any other one thing was the planting 
of the apple orchard, which he said he planted that the girls might pick up an apple 
to eat when school was out. He was always a father in his effort and desire to under- 
stand and help his students, and always an educator in his attitude toward school prob- 
lems and in his vision of the school of the future. 

The flag which covered him at his funeral service was placed there by members 
of his Grand Army Post because of his services to his country in the Civil War 
period. But it was also an appropriate tribute to his whole life of service to his family, 
to his college, to the towns and schools in which he worked, to his community, to all 
who came within the circle of his life. His aim was to serve and to win others to 


There is a great need for a Renaissance of School Spirit on Normal Hill. 
Let us keep up the traditions of a famous institution that we are proud to call 
the oldest State Normal School in America. Are we living up to the ideals of 
F. N. S. ? Do we respect those who are endeavoring to guide us on the right 
road and do we appreciate the effort and work given for us? The faculty have 
tried to instill a consciousness of a student's indebtedness to her school and the 
student leaders have tried to give the student body those activities which were 
wanted. Framingham offers us the best for the development of character and 
appreciation for the high ideals for which it stands that we may gain mental 
and moral strength. After all, a school is only as good as its school spirit. Let 
us carry our school spirit with us wherever we are — in class room, on the 
athletic field, or in our profession after we graduate. Be proud of your school 
and your school will be proud of j'ou. Start today and remember our motto 
"Live to the Truth." By so doing we can help others and honor our Alma Mater.

One of the departments closely connected with the Framingham Normal School 
is the Jonathan Maynard Training School. This is the school in which the Normal 
girls of both Elementary and Household Arts Departments receive a part of their 
practice teaching. The Household Arts girls do their teaching during their Junior 
year. They help the girls in grades 5 to 8 with foods and clothing. The Elementary 
girls have their assignment here during their Senior year. They have experience in 
teaching the various school subjects in grades 1 to 8. 

How can we ever forget the first day of our assignment at the Training School ? 
We walked down the hill to school with shaky knees and nerves all aflutter, but 
were received with kindness and immediately found ourselves within a friendly atmos- 
phere. We soon settled down and found the work not at all monotonous, but, on 
the contrary, always full of new events. 

We especially remember teaching music under the supervision of Mr. Archibald, 
games and folk dances under the direction of Miss Taylor and Miss Kingman, and 
drawing under Miss Allan. Some of us had the good fortune of having Miss Cum- 
mings observe and help us in teaching histor}^ Yes, our teaching was closely regarded, 
but, it seemed, never with adverse criticism. There was always sympathy and help 
from all sides to brush aside any troubles we might have had. 

Realizing the fine opportunities given us and the assistance we received, we feel 
indebted to the faculty of the Jonathan Maynard School. We know that the practice 
in teaching obtained here has given us a good subtantial basis for later work along 
this line.

Proclaim a friend to all, 'tis true.

Our Freshman days were filled with glee 
Though swiftly they did flee, 
And close upon them came the time 
When every morn the hill we'd climb 
For sophomores then were we. 
But now we're living through the year 
That in our hearts we'll hold most dear, 
For in the work that must be done 
Each one has found there can be fun. 
And each has helped to give good cheer. 
The "Vocs" gained much this year, tis true 
From teaching, planning, and house practice too. 
AVe wish you were here 
All through this glad year 
Instead of leaving us as j'ou do. 
The H. A. students though not of great fame 
Have learned how to play a four square game, 
For teaching is fine to develop the brain 
And house practice full of pleasure and pain — 
In spite of it all, we're glad that we came. 
As Juniors, all we'll ne'er forget 
Those to whom we owe a debt 
Miss Hall and Miss MacMillan, too 
Let us say a word to you 
"We'll leave our Crocker with regret."

Have you ever stopped to think 

Of the class of '34, 

How we looked as freshmen green 

As you looked before? 

Don't you long to be a freshman, 

Not a care to bother you ? 

Leave our worries till we're seniors 

That's what all the others do. 

Look us over while you may, 

We'll not always freshmen be. 

Times do change and we will too, 

So use your opportunity.

Cozj' by a crackling fireside 

Far from this confusion that seems world-wide. 

All that one could ask is here 

Yet I'm not happy — do you hear? 

Long years ago fair lands we roamed 

Gathered sweet treasures and happily groaned 

So long ago — yet life's gone on 

And left a void that shouldn't belong. 

For a strong handclasp — for a sight of your eyes 

Seems as if I see you and half up I rise. 

I don't function right — Fm all in a daze 

Come back to me ■ — Pal of my College Days. 





NINETEEN HUNDRED AND THIRTY-ONE! How soon it has arrived! 
As freshmen the climb to '31 seemed a long and difficult one but now that 
we have reached the top the four years' journey was not so hard to conquer 
after all. 

Our first September, how well we remember it ! The upper classmen with their 
greetings to returning chums and we, bewildered, dazed, pea-green freshmen, perhaps 
trying to stroll nonchalantly from place to place but failing miserably, as we were 
labeled "Freshie" from top to toe. 

After getting settled in our respective rooms, came the attempt to learn the art 
of solving a Chinese puzzle, at least it was such to us, in finding our way through the 
various dorms and school buildings via tunnels, stairs and bridges; thus we deduced 
that room 41 was on the first, not the fourth floor. 

Our first great event was Harvard-Yale Week-End. The Mock Man dance came 
first and we certainly had some fine looking gentlemen present. The following day 
brought machines from all parts of the state with those who wished to uphold the 
crimson or the blue. The game was a grand one, Yale being the victor. It is still 
a mystery to us how we all got into the gym. After a short rest, enthusiasm again ran 
high at the banquet which always has something to please everyone. 

Christmas came and proved to us there was a Santa Claus. Soon June, with 
graduation, class day and other activities and events, closed our first year at F. N. S. 

How different the September of our second year! One year had provided many 
familiar faces and warm greetings for our return. What fun to visit all the village 
houses which soon provided us with "heap big muscle" from our one or was it one- 
half minute stroll up the hill each morning. Our favorite rendezvous was the "real 
first" floor of Horace Man Hall. We were united many times in both class and social 
affairs. Our Hallowe'en party provided much entertainment as it was held in the 
seclusion of the spacious gymnasium and each house presented some skit such as "The 
Old Ford," "The Kitchen Orchestra," "The Volga Boatman." 

We also found time to settle down to business and it was as Sophomores that we 
came to the realization that there were such things as locker-rooms, chem-exams, special 
topics, darts, sleeves, tucks, eight o'clocks and psychology "dogs." 

Crocker at last, — the diamond year! 

How soon we accustomed ourselves either to the art of teaching or culinary. 
Those were the days of early breakfasts, bumpy bus rides and lunch boxes. Crocker 
kitchen always provided mysterious odors and tempting dishes which, when they were 



pies, gingerbread and such, received the quizzical looks of all. It was not until our 
Senior year that we realized that the odors had gone but the appetite still lingered on. 

Hallowe'en brought all the spooks and rattling chains from attic and cellar. How- 
ever, all fears of the unknown vanished and only the known quantity in form of eats 
and dance music prevailed. 

At our Junior Prom, Lanvin, Molyneux and Patou came forth in grand parade. 

Now — Seniors ! What an eventful year. First, our installation exercises with 
the coming of our new principal. Our Senior-Freshman Hop, something new in the 
history of F. N. S. Harvard-Yale week-end came next, with Harvard the victor thus 
changing the history to a tie score for our four year battle of H-Y games. 

Christmas caroling, long will we remember the lighted candles with their waxy 
drippings and the lunch that awaited us at Crocker when the festivities were finished. 
Valentine's Day brought our formal Dial Dance which was the last word in fashion. 
The Fine Arts and Musical Clubs provided excellent entertainments in which the 
class of '31 was well represented, as it has been in athletic and other activities. 

At last the arrival of Commencement. We have reached the top and as we receive 
our diplomas we will know where we came from, why we have been here and we 
sincerely hope, where we are going. 

Doris Flint. 

till I 



THERE were six of us when, like all typical freshmen, we joined the ranks of 
the home wreckers and wondered what it was all about. Whether or not it 
was a case of survival of the fittest or a struggle for existence, the fact remains 
that our members gradually diminished and now we are three. At that we did better 
than the codfish. 

While we were still in our verdure we were introduced to the mysteries of house- 
practice at the "Voc" house. This first stay was in the company of lordly seniors who, 
contrary to tales of the proverbial seniors, were guiding lights. Although we then 
played an insignificant part in the scheme of things, rumors of our habits still exist. 
It is said that Al's preference for the laundry and its charms were evident even at such 
tender years ; Caroline was, as of late, to be found digging wooly worms, of which 
everyone else was afraid, out of the corn ; and Louise's hopeless absent-mindedness 
was even then a fixture. We know our shortcomings. It was during that year that 
the Vocational department anthem "Hallelujah" was made an anthem. (Since then 
it shares honors with "Trudy" and "Bye, Bye Blues" but they can never bring the 
warm feelings to the heart of a Vocational that does our first-born.) 

After the interval that was our Sophomore year had passed, we again took up our 
abode on 178 Maple Street; this time we were all together. Gladly we noticed that 
Mr. Johnson still conducted the singing of the radiators and that the blue eyed ice 
man still filled the ice box. We reluctantly abandoned our housewifely cares on two 
days of the week and applied our trades at the Union and the Trade School. It was 
during this time that we learned of the loathness of conductors to stop the trolley cars 
without much leaping about on the part of the prospective rider, we improved our 
mind with the "Hog of the Ark" and "Fish Preferred," and in general learned many 
of the ways of the cruel world which had hitherto not entered into our protected young 
lives. At the Union, Caroline was frequently to be seen hob-nobbing with the southern 
bus boy ; it was up to Alice to nip the budding young romance — well — in the bud. 

And then our Senior year, the metamorphosis so to speak, of the trio. We now 
put into effect only well planned and perfected escapades. Whereas in our innocent 
youth we made pie beds which were merely pie beds, in our metamorphosis we made 
elaborate ones with onions, bushes, and kitchen ware to add just that touch of fineness 
which had formerly been beyond our ken. 

With assistance we kept our house in order ; the silver queen stood guard over 
the grounds, and Sophie, Count Vere de Vere and the Whelk protected the interior. 
But even with these cares lifted from our minds, such difficulties as feeding such corn 
as had hitherto been served only to cows, to the Vocational house family, and the dis- 
covery of bits of glue in what was presumably snow pudding arose. 

But to make this narrative smack of a eulogy, we add that we have had a great 
time in housepractice and otherwise. That's our story and we stick with it.

IN an endeavor to make the past present and to bring the distant near, let us go 
back to a day in the summer of '29 when we received a letter, a welcome to F. N. S. 
Of course the letter was from our Senior Sister. All this happened one day in 
August while we were busily preparing for our sojourn on Normal Hill. 

At last the happy day dawned. Upon arriving at Framingham we were much 
impressed by the bigness of it all. In a short time we were located by our "big sister" 
and immediately we began to feel more at home. 

We became much better acquainted with each other and the Faculty at the 
Freshmen Reception. 

Soon we found ourselves waiting in an agony of suspense for the arrival of the 
occasion so hilariously indulged in by the upper-classmen. 

Initiation was to take place! Do you recall how we wore our black cotton stock- 
ings and submitted meekly to the thrusts of the upper-classmen? 

Many of us recall that after our Hallowe'en Party we adjourned to our rooms 
to find door-knobs greased, and the room literally turned upside down, and inside out. 

In November we were very much pleased to learn that we could attend our first 
dance, given by the Student Government Association, especially so early in the year. 
This social was held in May Hall w"hich was very attractively decorated for the 

Later that same month came Harvard-Yale Week-End, along with the Mock Man 
Dance. We had previously decided, that is at the A. A. supper served on the back 
hill, whether we would cast our lot with the reds or blues. The Mock Man Dance 
ushered in this gay week-end. This event was a source of much hilarit}^ However, the 
week-end proved to be a "Blue" one, for Yale emerged victorious. 

Christmas time found us being entertained by Santa Claus. Will any of us forget 
the tapers and holly in the dining-room, together with the pageant? How we enjoyed 
our CTiristmas party and also how thrilled we were with the caroling of the seniors. 
At this time we realized that in only a year we too would be carrying out this treasured 

After our Christmas vacation we returned to our studies with zest and enthu- 
siasm. IVIany New Year's resolutions were in practice you see. 

Early in January we attended our first formal dance at F. N. S. 

We thoroughly enjoyed "The Dragon of Wu Foo" given by the Musical Clubs. 



Stunt Night was a source of great enjoyment to us all, especially the reproduction 
uf the operetta by the faculty. 

"The Last of Mrs. Cheney," produced by the Fine Arts Club, was greatly 

The combined concert with Tufts was very much enjoyed. 

Soon we realized that our first year at F. N. S. was drawing to a close. We 
watched the preparations of our Senior Sisters, for Commencement was not far away. 
We were glad that we had another year to spend with our Alma Mater. 

In September we returned to the school on Normal Hill. How happy we were 
to renew^ acquaintances ! 

There was much excitement at the bulletin board near May Hall for here was 
posted the list of teaching assignments. However, it was decided that "everything 
happens for the best," and that the time assigned to each of us was best, after all. 

Many an enjoyable evening was spent in Horace Mann relating our harrowing 
summer experiences. 

Early in the year we attended the Freshmen-Senior Hop given in Peirce Hall. 

Once more we prepared for Harvard-Yale Week-End. This year the spoils were 
divided, each side being victorious in one event. Many of the alumnae returned to 
their Alma Mater on this occasion. 

In spite of our many projects and lesson plans many of us attended the informal 
dance at Peirce Hall. 

This year we took part in the Christmas celebration, here we were allowed to 
display our talents and again Santa Claus was very good to us. Have any of you 
forgotten carolling by candlelight and how we were rewarded with a delicious repast 
prepared for us by the girls in Crocker? 

In January we were entertained by the Musical Club Concert. 

We were fortunate in having a formal in Peirce for the benefit of our Dial. 

There was but one cloud on our horizon during our stay at F. N. S. That was 
the loss of Mary Carruth, one of the dearest and most beloved members of our class. 

Nearer and nearer comes our Commencement. Already we are wondering what 
the future holds in store for us, but we joyfully look back on our many happy days 
spent on the hill. 

Though we are looking forward to the festivities preceding graduation, with it 
comes the thought of separation from friends both tried and true. 

Through the adroit guidance of our many teachers, soon will come the day when 
we will receive our diplomas which permit us to take our place in the teaching world, 
and may we truthfully say Veni-Vidi-Vici. 

Winifred Connelly. 




November 30, 1941 
Dear Marion : 

It's too bad you couldn't have been with us last week-end. Harvard-Yale Week- 
End is still the bright spot of the fall activities back in dear old F. N. S. It was a 
perfect day for the games. Of course Yale won both of them, but the fun of the 
games was nothing compared with the meeting and the hearing of news about so 
many of the girls in our class. 

Eileen refereed the basketball game. We hardly knew her because she is so 
tanned. You know, she never did any teaching. Remember she used to say, "Why 
work, when j'ou can be paid for watching people swim?" Well, that's just what she 
has been doing. About three years ago she was made chairman of the "Worcester 
Life Saving Organization." Rumor has it, though, that it is not going to last much 
longer. It is said that she is about to use her culinary art. I don't know who he is, 
but Okey always reached for the best. We were talking with her after the game and 
she told us that Al Erickson, Fran Sunbury and Ruth Pierce had opened a lunchroom 
in the Centre for the exclusive use of F. N. S. girls. Piercie is the bookkeeper, ac- 
countant, etc. She insists on taking an inventory every week. She got her training at 
F. N. S. You know "Booty" gave her her first lesson the day Piercie said that it made 
no difference whether there were peaches or cherries in the can as long as you count 
the cans. 

Speaking of "Booty" she, Helen Mac, and Helen Cutter are to open with the 
Chicago Opera Co. They should be a big success. Luna is with them to watch out 
for them as she did the four years while we w'ere at school. 

After the game, we went to Crocker for supper. Remember the year we served 
the Alumnae? I didn't think, then, than I would ever be back to bother the poor 
Juniors, but there I was. Imagine my surprise to find Bea Arrand in charge of 
Crocker. She told us that Miss Hall and Miss Macmillan had left and gone into business 
of some kind, I can't remember what it was. Because of her splendid work our Senior 
year, she obtained Miss Hall's place and Ruth Barker has Miss MacMillan's. Every- 
thing seemed to be going along smoothly. Bea told me about some of the girls who are 
back at school teaching there. Helen Webber has taken Miss Buckley's place and 
Evelyn Swanson is head of the Chemistry Department. Kay Hebert has taken Dr. 
Meier's place. When Kay took over this work Miss Gardener was no longer needed 
because Kay w'as able to handle all of the work in the department, bookstore, and all. 

Al Atkins was there. She told us that she had just finished writing another article 
for "Woman's Home Companion." This one is entitled "What the Red-haired Girl 



Will Wear This Winter." She also told us that Caroline Wright got tired of teaching 
in South Africa so she has come north to Egypt to teach, and Louise Ralston sailed 
last week to join her and to help her with her work. 

On our way over to the Alumnae game we met Grace Cronin, who, by the way, 
is head of the physical education department at F. N. S. She said that Polly Harnden 
and her All Star Hockey Team had just left for England where they will play the 
deciding game for the world championship. Elinor Thieme, Lu Poitras, and Barb 
Hewitson are on her team. They first learned to work together on the Harvard 
Team in 1929 and continued doing so in 1930. Dot Cutter and Alice Greenwood 
and their husbands have gone along as chaperones. 

Doris Gwynn was here only for the Alumnae game in the evening. She couldn't 
come up for the afternoon game because Gibby had to go to work at four o'clock and 
she had to be home to get his supper. Doris told us that Mr. and Mrs. "Ducky" Hay- 
ward are receiving congratulations on the birth of another daughter. Jackie Creamer 
has a linen shop where she sells luxurious handmade embroideries. Doris also said 
that Dot Young has written an article entitled "Why I Believe in Spoiling my Babies," 
and Doris added, "she practices what she writes about." Scotty has revised the Chil- 
dren's Clothing Course. There are to be no samples of stitches or processes that were 
made in the freshman and sophomore years. 

Mary Whittemore and Stanley have just returned home after Mary's concert 
tour of the United States. She said that Helen Beverly had invented some sort of 
a thing for figuring diets so that the girls who take dispensary won't have to spend 
so much time on their work. Phil Clarke, Helen Simpson, and Erma Ramsdell have 
opened a school in town for students who need extra help in French. They are doing 
a big business. They have studied for three years in France under Marjorie Long who 
has been teaching there since graduation. 

Caroline and Loretta are busy women now, believe me. Caroline has been spend- 
ing all of her spare time on a book which is to go to the publishers next week. It is 
entitled "If You Are Only A Little Girl, Don't Worry, You'll Grow Up When 
^ ou Are Twenty-One." Loretta has accepted the position of Supervisor of Home 
Economics in Boston. They told us that Mary couldn't come because she was sailing 
the next day for Brazil to study the system of distributing mail in the Normal Schools 
down there. Her chief interest is in whether or not they should be allowed to get their 
mail before their nine o'clock classes, especially on Monday. Mabel Skillings, Beryl 
Rogers, and Terry Mark are down there teaching the natives to make their own 

Doris Flint played in the Alumnae Game. She was on her vacation. Do 3'ou 
know — she is still collecting elephants. She has a priceless collection now. Anna 



Russell told us about the famous New York designers, Ackerman, IVIarshall Co. and 
Anna's dress was proof of their ability. Mrs. Amidon should be proud of her former 

Eleanor Johnson is head dietitian at Massachusetts General. She is using a text 
book written by Virginia deBarba Howe entitled "Diet In The Dining-Room, You 
Can Eat All You Want Between Meals, Maybe You'll Lose Weight." 

I also heard that Lois Nutter has her Spanish home in Southern Arizona 

completed. Clare Goddard and Barbara George saw her while thej' were traveling the 
country last summer. They said that she was very happy and was expecting Betsy 
Cairns to visit her. Bets is another one of the class who is using her housepractice 

You remember that "Ole Gang O' ]\Iine"' — Mulgrew, Montana, Morris, John- 
son, Forbes and Burke? They are living in Alaska where the nights are six months 

Ethel Brooks has received a gold medal from the President for her excellent work 
in "Girl Scouting." Brooksie is still there. She always was and always will be 
prepared (on time) I guess. 

Mr. and Mrs. Churchill Rood (wee Ruth Garland) entertained a group of 
friends last week and during the evening Betty Harvey announced her engagement to 
a Columbia professor. You knew that Betty was working for her Ph.D., didn't you? 

Bea Hutchinson and Myrtle Jeffery are living on a ranch down in Texas where 
they are raising cows. They got their inspiration and start during our senior year 
they say. 

Do you ever see anything of Marion Genthner? Since she is married and 
living there in Harvard so near you, I should think you would get together some time. 

Oh ! I nearly forgot — I read in my Berkshire Eagle that Tena Bishop has 
succeeded Mr. Farley as State leader. 

Well, Marion dear, I guess this is news enough for once. Write to me when 
you get a chance. Since I took this position as Superintendent of Schools I don't have 
as much time as I used to have. 

Remember me to Gene and all the little ones. 

Love to all, 





The Little Red Schoolhouse, East Burlap, Mass. 
(Just outside of So. Fram. going up Union Ave.) 
March 5, 1951 
Dear Winnie: 

I've been meeting quite a few of the girls from school lately and have found out 
what they are doing so I'm going to pass it on to you. But first — is Berkshire as attractive 
as ever and how is teaching going? 

You'll never guess who is the new matron at Horace Mann — Jeannette Donnelly. 
As yet she says she hasn't found anyone to "pick on." 

Daisy Erickson, Peg North, and Grace Silvey work in the information booth in 
South Station. All they have to do is answer the questions people ask, such as "What 
time can I get a train to Worcester?" and "What train do I take to make connection 
for Millbury?" It's really quite easy for them. 

Ingrid is back at school in the capacity of adviser to freshmen who are letting their 
hair grow. She tells them how to do short hair up so it will stay. 

Met Win Doneilo in town the other day. After the first helloes, etc., a gadget 
on her coat said, "No, this isn't Nellie's dress." She invented it soon after she got 
out of school and says it has saved her a lot of trouble. 

Helen Everitt, Margaret Moir and Picky Pickard have an apartment in Cam- 
bridge where they teach the young hopefuls of that cit\^ 

Frieda Fine is dean at F. N. S. She's so good at questions! 

Marty Flannagan has a dandy job at the East Boston Airport. She's a traffic 
cop there. She got her experience in the "gym" at Jonathan Maynard, "tweet-tweet- 
ing" on her whistle! 

Remember Kay Gallen ? Well, one morning a few weeks ago she woke up with 
a start, looked at her clock, made a dash for a train for Framingham ! She thought 
that it was a number of years ago, I guess. 

Annis, Sophie, Florence and Betty are traveling far and wide. Cards from Africa 
say that the conditions there are deplorable, no matter how much you scrub the natives 
they don't come out white! 

Mary Gibbons is teaching in Westboro in the hope that the "flu" will become 
prevalent again and she will get some more time off. 

In a broadcast from London recently, I heard Helen Leahy singing, "There are 
Fairies at the Bottom of our Garden" to the ro3'al family. I'm sure they were as 
spellbound as we were in the old days at F. N. S. 

Sally Leavitt is in China as a saleswoman for "Soapy Stories," one of the Yelineck 
Publications — Eva recently bought the McFadden Publications. 

Doris Litchfield is in Switzerland driving Essex cars up and down the Alps. She 
applied for the position after being so successful with her own Essex up and down 
Normal Hill. 



Ruth Sarano told me that while she was in Paris buying clothes she saw Shirley 
Lubowitz who is a manikin at the House of Worth in Paris. 

Dot Macallister is with the Chicago Opera Company which will be in Boston 

Helen Madden is in Canada as teacher to the Prince of Wales (Former Prince 
of Wales is now married, this is his heir.) 

Mary Mongovin is teaching in California. She wrote recently to say that at a 
meeting of the Southern California Club she met Mary Banis who is also teaching 

Blanche Wetmore, Pet O'Malley and Ethel Reed are running a kindergarten 
in Eskimo-Land. They heard that no one else had done it before and that a\ as enough ! 

Thelma Salzgeber is still teaching in Weymouth. Had a card from Helen Shea 
and Claire Smith the other day. They are cruising around the world in their yacht. 
Helen said Claire had a nightmare recently. She dreamed she was back in Miss Russell's 
room with Thomas Gannon throwing ink balls at her ! 

It's getting to be an everyday occurrence to have honors conferred upon Framing- 
ham graduates, but this is an unusual one — Christine Sheehan was made an honorary 
member of the Girl Guides in London at their annual meeting last week. 

Mary Stavropoulos is Ambassador to the United States from Greece. While at 
the Capitol a short while ago, she received me with her old time charm and it was 
she who told me that Evelyn Rattie was trying to raise money to have all the Roman 
ruins modernized. 

Did you hear Mim Goodwin over the radio the other day? She gave some dandy 
impersonations. She also gives elocution lessons. 

Mary Grasso has established a world record. She won a contest, the object of 
which was to see how many appointments she could be late for and still be nonchalant 
without lighting a Murad. 

Framingham girls do lots of things besides actual teaching. Ethel Hedman is 
at Normal School in China. She meets the incoming class in August for personal 
conferences where she discusses the advantages of boarding and commuting from a 
wealth of experience. 

Hazel produced last week on Broadway the most famous play she has ever written 
— "How 'e Held Them!" 

Arlene Hilliard and Esther Kyte are exploring Africa together. The trip is 
primarily to find the "Mountains of the Moon." Esther heard of them somewhere 
and now she's just got to find them. 

Amelia Hodgkinson is happy tho' married and wrote only last week to enroll 
the twins in the freshman class at F. N. S. 

Got quite a laugh the other day when I read in the paper about Kay Hutch, 
Bessie Stern, and Mary Quinn going to Mexico by bus to visit Dot Trimble. They 
told reporters they hadn't slept a wink on the way down so they wouldn't miss a thing. 
From the picture in the paper they haven't changed a bit. 



Catherine Gray is in Hollywood. She has taken Gilda Gray's (no relation) place. 
Her directors say that since her last film, box office receipts have gone up by leaps 
and bounds — we understand why. 

Prominent at a banquet held recently in Chicago to commemorate the twentieth 
anniversary of the Chicago Pineapple, were the three "Mayoresses" of that city; Mary 
Kelley, Helen Mason, and Marion McAuley. 

Anna Kerr is among the artists who are exhibiting this fall at the Royal Academy. 

The story teller in the Boston Public Library is Eleanor Lawrence. 

Evelyn Wyman is in Peiping, China, competing in a world wide contest to see 
from what nation comes the fastest talker. Somehow we have an idea the good old 
U. S. A. will win. 

Did you see Ma3'belle Morrill's picture on the cover of "Cosmopolitan" last 
month? Wasn't it good? 

Dot Myers is principal at the Training School. My ! how times have changed. 

The newly elected cheer leader for I Wanta Pi Sorority is Dot Nickerson. 

Shades of Miss Carter ! Met Betty Stevens in town last Saturday. She's tall, 
Winnie, and looks like Miss Carter. She took some pills Lfrsula Urquhart concocted. 

Alice White is an announcer on the N.B.C. network. Heard her introduce Joe 
Smith last week who talked on "Foxboro, the Ideal Residential Town." 

Had a book sent to me recently, "How to Eat and Still Retain a Good Figure." 
You'll never guess who wrote it — Mary Altimas ! Experience was her teacher. 

Celia Barr has retired, she's very wealthy, j-ou know, since she took out patents 
for improvements for the gas bugg\^ You don't have the impression of a stormy night 
at sea when you ride in one. 

Lillian Bearse told me she realized that she should have taught "uppers" 'cause 
the desks are so close to the floor in "lowers." 

Annie Birdsall and Cappie Bruen are teaching in Florida — Annie on account 
of the scenery and Cappie for reasons of her own. 

Happy Boothroyd started to teach but was "discovered" and now is crooning 
blues in place of "Rudy" who is quite old now. 

Eleanor Brightman and Grace Mintoft have excelled Einstein with their theory 
"how to get from second floor to third Horace Mann in the shortest possible distance." 

Bessie Bubryzchi is in partnership with Mary Toledo running an information 
bureau. Bessie does the collecting and Mary has the charge of the business end of it. 

Marion Byrnes and Rita Shannon are in vaudeville. Are they good! They still 
have their wealth of old gags. 

Doris Campbell at last found an appreciative audience for her tap dancing — 
we haven't heard where, but we have her word for it. 

Well, Win, I guess that's about all — and enough for I've got writer's cramp. 
Oh I forgot to tell you — I'm giving up teaching in June and going in for flying in 
a big way. You know I always wanted to. 





WE, the Class of 1931, offer SOMETHING for NOTHING. Of course 
we have stood by Morgan Memorial, but we saved these things for you. 
Right this way are the faculty's reserve seats, Juniors — no scrubbing brushes 
needed here. Sophomores 30U are late again but we are glad you came, Freshmen, 
standing room only. 

To whoever cares — our appreciation for the radio which is undoubtedly still 
on its way to Horace Mann Hall. 

To whoever is responsible for "special topics," a lily for the right hand and a 
banana peel for either foot. 

To the Glee Club, "the little white doves in the orchard." 

To Miss Hall, a safe deposit vault for the cookies of Crocker. 

To Dr. Meier, our appreciation for the side issues M-ith "no extra charge." 

To Miss Swan, an undernourished senior class so the floors of Horace Mann no 
more will tremble with the weight of buxom maidens. 

To the pastry cook, a "force" pump to bring his cake to a higher plane. 

To Helen McClintock, a case of cod liver oil in hopes that she will gain strength 
enough to stand and talk at the same time. 

To "Scotty," a ticket to Haverhill that she may visit her renowned predecessor, 
Annie — the pride of the biology department. 

To the underclassmen, this tip — avail yourself of vocal instruction — you will 
need it when you attempt those Scottish tunes in the English class. 

To Peirce Hall, a little canned heat for those cold fish cakes. 

To the freshmen — cheer up! the "best" is yet to come. 

To Miss Poole, our regrets that we are without the proper illustrative material 
for Children's Clothing, our hopes are in the future. 

To "Gin" Howe, a fool-proof chair. 

To the Army, the "mules" we were advised to dispose of. 

To the treasurer of the Junior class, our treasurer leaves her taking ways. 

To country cousins in general, the original models of the millinery class. 

To the windows of Horace Mann Hall, nervous curtains which will drop of 
fright the moment the lights are turned on. 

To ubiquitous bacteria, all sterile agar, sterile test tubes, sterile flasks, sterile 
pipettes and sterile petri dishes as a municipal playground. 

To you, who are still standing by, our broadcast is o'er — Morgan has the rest 
of our memorials. 

Ruth Boutwell.

A "Brightman" came from "Montana" one day 
Riding in a rickety one horse "Shea" 
And when the horse a "Ford" did see 
"Howe" he did "Trimble" and turn to flee. 

A "Young" boy had a big "White" "Kyte" 
In flying it he took delight 
One day the "North" wind blew so hard 
It landed in a "Mason's" yard. 

There was once a wood-"Cutter" named "Scott" 
In the "Greenwood" he did buy a lot 
When to this "Fine" spot he did stray 
"Bruen" the bear, did chase him away. 

There was once a man both old and "Gray" 
In his "Morris" chair he sat all day 
And all that of him we can tell 
Is that his name was "George" "Campbell." 

Where the "Riber" "Shannon" flows 
Dwells a maid \^ ith cheeks of rose 
She wears a frock of "Kelly" green 
In which she goes to see the queen. 

All day "Long" the "Brooks" do flow, 
The "Downey" "Reed" waves to and fro 
Out on the "Hill" top the "Birdsall" sing 
"Russell" the "Garland" for it is spring! 




A is for Al with troubles galore 

B stands for Booty who is never a bore. 

C is for Clare who is full of fun 

D you all know is none but Dot \ oung. 

E is for Eva so dainty and neat 

F is for Ford, quiet and order she'll keep.

HE Student Government Organization is a vital part of Framingham Normal 
School. Ever3' year we feel that it is progressing and we hope that in the 
years to come it will become an even more vital part of the school. 

The freshmen are introduced to the school by their "Senior Sisters." 

The first event in the Association's program was the Student Government Double 
Dance which was declared a success by the entire student body. 

In keeping with the Christmas spirit, the student body gave presents, trees, and 
a sum of money to the needy of Framingham, through the Associated Cliarities. 

In order to keep the public aware of our many activities a committee has been 
appointed to see that local and urban papers receive news from the school. 

A committee is now working on next year's handbook — a copy of which is sent 
to every freshman during the summer. 

Through the work of a committee we are hoping to have one or two special 
assemblies for the entire student body. 

Through the co-operation of every student, for every student is a member of this 
organization, we are able to hope for success. If this fine spirit of co-operation is 
carried on through the years, the Association should realize its greatest success.

HE Class and Club Council is an organization which aims to bring about active 
co-operation between the classes and clubs and to carry on the social activities 
of the school. 

The members of this council consist of a President, Secretar\', and Treasurer and 
each club and class President. 

The most important business of this council is carried on at the spring and autumn 
houseparties. The houseparties this ^ear were held at Riverbank Lodge in Sherborn. 
Each member, at the autumn houseparty, presents the program that her organization 
plans to carry out during the year. Each president puts forth the problems confronting 
her class or club and all the members \vork together to solve these problems. At this 
time the time and meeting place of each organization is decided so that all conflicts will 
be avoided. 

The social calendar for this year was made out at the autumn houseparty and the 
meetings for the classes and clubs were decided upon. 

The services held each Sunday night in Peirce Hall living room are under the 
direction of the presidents of classes and clubs. 

A definite system of keeping treasurers' accounts has been formed this year. So far, 
this has proven to be a great success. 

At the spring houseparty the Class and Club Council-elect is invited to join with 
present Class and Club Council. At this time all old business left is finished and each 
president has an opportunity to acquaint the president-elect with her organization and 
its work for the new j^ear. 

A Business meeting is held monthly. 

The activity of the C C. C. this year was a formal dance held in Peirce Hall. 

The C. C. C. is an organization that is working for the entire school, therefore 
all suggestions from faculty and students are greatly appreciated.

HE Chemistn' Students at Framingham are fortunate in having a system of 
government which is verj' different from that in anj^ other department. 

In the year 1924-1925, the adoption of Student Government throughout the 
school w^as being considered. The Chemistry department was willing to aid the project 
and so offered itself for experimentation. This plan was adopted and a system of 
government was organized by the students. This was so successful that at the end of 
the year a constitution was drawn up and a more complete organization made. From 
that time all matters pertaining to the Chemistry Department have been conducted by 
this organization which operates thru a council and a sub-council. The aim of this 
body has been student development and co-operation.

THE Framingham Alusical Clubs are composed of the Glee Club, Orchestra, and 
the Choir. This \ear has been an especialh' busy and interesting one. 

On December 15th the Glee Club gave a Christmas concert at the Boston 
Public Library. On the following Sunday we sang carols at the Framingham hospital. 

The night before we went home for the Christmas holidays, a candle-light service 
was given by the Glee Club in the assembly hall. It was a sombre, beautiful, inspiring 

In January our annual concert was presented by the Glee Club and the Orchestra 
with the assistance of Mr. Harry Dickson, violinist, and Mr. Charles Acorn, tenor. 
These men were accompanied on the piano by Mr. Samuel Gardiner. It was an excellent 
performance and our guest artists added immeasurably to the success of our concert. 
The final number, "Agnus Dei", sung by the Glee Club and Mr. Acorn, with Mr. 
Dickson and our Orchestra playing, made a most effective and appropriate ending. 

In the spring a joint concert with Brown University was given. This consisted of 
well chosen numbers by each club alone, and other pieces with both clubs singing 

In June the members of the Musical Clubs will stay for graduation, assisting at 
the baccalaureate and graduation exercises, and on class day evening will present a 
concert on Horace Mann terrace. 

For special holida^-s the Musical Clubs have furnished selections, and each morn- 
ing during the year have supplied a pianist to play at chapel. 

The Choir has sung every Tuesday morning. It is composed of about twenty 
upper classmen. In the selection of its members the seniors are given preference. 

In June the Alusical Clubs sponsored a Framingham Pops Night at S^'mphony 

All through the A^ear we have felt very keenly the friendly radiance and sympathetic 
understanding of ^Ir. Archibald. It has been a pleasure to work with him as our leader. 

The purpose of our clubs is to gain an understanding and appreciation of good 
nmsic, and to add something of beauty and richness to the lives of those around us. We 
have enjoved our year, and we hope that we have accomplished to some degree that 
which we have tried to do.

The Fine Arts Club aims to supplement the everyday life of the school with the 
pleasure of cultural arts. 

The first event of the year was the annual Masquerade, a colorful and spectacular 
social affair which was thoroughly enjoyed by the many students who attended. 

In March we were most fortunate in having as our guest Mr. Cyrus Dallin, one 
of the most famous sculptors in the countr\\ 

We had charge of Amicitia twice this \ear. For our first meeting Miss Hall gave 
a charming travel talk on her trip out West ; for the second, we had a program made 
up entirely of Freshman talent. 

"Holiday" by Philip Barry was chosen for the annual Fine Arts Play and pre- 
sented by the talented members of the club, on March 27th. The large attendance was 
evidence of the fact that the Club play has come to be regarded as one of the big events 
of the year. 

The bridge dinner at the Framingham Country Club was the closing event of the 
year to which all of the members looked forward with pleasure. 

We have striven for interest and variety in our year's work program and hope that 
all members may have received some profit and enjoyment from it.

THE Home Economics Club was organized at Framingham in 1924. Our pur- 
pose is to bring together Home Economics students of the two upper classes so 
that they maj- keep in closer touch with current topics of Home Economics inter- 
est, and to provide an organization about which school activities related to Home 
Economics center. The "Club House" of said organization shall be used to afford girls 
the opportunity to make a practical application of Household Arts, and to have a house 
for social meetings of various groups. We are affiliated with the State, New England, 
and American Home Economics Associations. 

This year we had a very successful "Ellen Richards" Program in December in 
commemoration of Mrs. Richards, whose work makes her one of the most beloved 
and instrumental persons in the Home Economics field. At this meeting Miss Mary 
Barrows of Boston gave us a delightful portrayal of Mrs. Richards' life. 

In January, we had an interesting and instructive talk by Dr. Arthur Holmes of 
Boston. At Christmas time we made scrap books for the Children's Ward at Framing- 
ham Hospital. 

Our March meeting was in the form of an Interschool Program. Representatives 
from six different High Schools about Boston, and a representative of Regis College 
were present at the meeting, and told us about their High School Home Economics 

"International Night" was April 10th this year. The program consisted of a num- 
ber of acts, and food, typical of the different countries, was sold by girls dressed in 
costumes characteristic of those different countries. 

We are planning to send a delegate to the National Home Economics Convention 
at Detroit this year. 

Many other good times have been had at our Club House by the members of the 
club — waffle breakfasts, parties, meetings, and socials. 

We wish to express our appreciation to all the members of the faculty, and to the 
student body, who have helped to make this year a successful one.

N 1917 the Young Women's Christian Association of the Framingham Normal 
School was established. The Club joined the Metropolitan Board which is com- 
posed of several colleges around Boston and sends delegates to the meetings. 

This year, 1930-1931, has been a very successful one. At the first Cabinet meeting 
we were informed that IMiss Collier was to succeed ]Mrs. Palmer as adviser of our 
association, and that Dr. Meier in combination with Miss Carter, \\as to be our new 
faculty adviser. All these advisers have contributed valuable suggestions which have 
helped to make our 3 ear so successful. 

In the early fall we sent a representative to the Cedar Hill Conference. Our rep- 
resentative brought back interesting material which has benefited us so much this year. 

Some of the Cabinet members visited a few settlement houses in Boston during 
the month of November. The visit made us begin to realize the wonderful social work 
that is being carried on. 

We were very fortunate to have Miss Hayward, a representative of the League of 
Nations, speak to us at our Amicitia in November. 

Miss Hunt and Reverend DwMght Bradley of Newton both lead us in discussions 
dealing with problems of vital importance to the girls. 

Our annual Christmas Bazaar was a huge financial success due to the co-operation 
and enthusiasm of students and faculty. 

The Cabinet members brought much cheer to the ladies at the C^ld Ladies' Home 
at Christmas time. They presented the ladies with gifts and sang favorite Christmas 

In January, Mrs. Johnson, w'ho is much interested in Y. W. work, entertained 
the Cabinet at her home. We are all very grateful to Mrs. Johnson for her interest 
shown in our work. 

We have been very much pleased with the enthusiasm shown in Y. W. this year 
and we hope the interest will be even greater in the years to come.

HE A'Kempis Club of Framingham Normal School is a club for girls of the 
Catholic faith. 

This club was first formed in 1918 to take the place of the various Catholic 
clubs which the girls belonged to at home, to provide a means whereb\- the girls could 
get together to discuss common problems and also to bring them together socially. 

Our club is affiliated with the Federation of Catholic College Clubs which con- 
sists of over one hundred student clubs throughout the United States and Canada. We 
are represented at all of the meetings of the New England Province which are held in 
Boston every month, and take an active part in the charity work which the New Eng- 
land Province is carrying on, one part of which is providing entertainment for the 
patients of the Holy Ghost Hospital at Cambridge. 

We are to be represented at the National Convention in New York next July by 
a member of our club. Last year we sent a delegate to the National Convention which 
was held in Boston. 

We are kept in close contact with the various clubs by means of the "Newman 
News," the official publication of the Federation, which every member of the A'Kempis 
receives once a month. 

Our meetings are held the second Thursday of each month either at St. Bridget's 
Church or at our club rooms in the Rectory. At our meetings we have had many 
instructive and educative talks by our chaplain, Fr. John Parsons. At Christmas time 
we heard of his experiences in the Holy Land and saw pictures which he took while 
there. At that meeting some of our girls were dressed in the native garb of their 

For our first Amicitia Service Rev. Edward Harrington brought to us the life of 
Saint Paul in an inspiring way. Our second Amicitia Service was provided by members 
of the club during the Holy Season of Lent. 

We have had a happy 3'ear together and may the A'Kempis Club continue to keep 
up her good spirit, loyalty and co-operation.

WE have tried to find a physical activity of interest for every girl. Individual 
interests have been considered because we feel that every girl must have an 
interest in at least one type of sport. With this in mind the program for the 
year was planned. 

A. A. handbooks were sent out to the entering freshman class so that they might 
be acquainted with the activities in which the association participates. 

During senior week a supper hike for the seniors and their freshmen was sponsored 
by the A. A. 

The annual Harvard-Yale Week-End was greeted and carried through with the 
usual amount of enthusiasm. 

On November twentieth, a delegate was sent to Bridgewater to the Athletic Con- 
ference for Massachusetts Normal Schools. 

The Harvard-Yale hockey and basketball F's were awarded at a supper meeting 
held in December in the commuters' lunch room. 

The Stunt Show was held in May Hall March 6th and furnished all who were 
there with a good entertainment. 

At the end of the school year recognition is given to girls who have actually par- 
ticipated in sports. 

Have you found your favorite sport ? We offer you hockey, basketball, baseball, 
hiking, swimming, skating, and sliding. Surely there is a sport listed here that you 
must like and will continue to enjoy after leaving F. N. S.

THE Commuters' Club is made up of girls who do not live under the dormitory 

The purpose of the club is to discuss and do everything possible to solve the 
problems of commuting students, and to bring these students together in a social way. 

Soon after the opening of the school year, Miss Savage entertained the members 
of the club at a most enjoyable party. 

During the Christmas season a party was held in Horace Mann living room. 
Mr. Workman ably played the role of Santa Claus. 

Perhaps one of the most enjoyable occasions of the year came in February when 
Principal Arthur N. Burke of the Waltham High School spoke on Switzerland. This 
instructive and interesting lecture was attended not only by club members but by mem- 
bers of the faculty and student body. 

The Commuters' Cabaret, an annual affair, took place on February sixth. To 
Miss Miriam Goodwin, Miss Edith Savage, Miss Louise Kingman, Mr. Frederick W. 
Ried, and members of the committee should go much credit for the success of the affair. 

We wish to thank the faculty and members of the club for the interest which they 
have shown and the support \\ hich they have given us the past year.

The Alumnae Association sends hearty greetings to the class of 1931. 

Bjr our time-honored policy, each of you, on graduation, becomes a member of the 
Association sharing its privileges and responsibilities. 

Schools find that loyal graduates are indispensable to their well-being, and, inas- 
much as in union there is strength, local clubs are formed to further the interests of 
the school and to increase good fellowship and helpfulness among its graduates. 

There are eleven Framingham Clubs at work, all of which are desirous of increas- 
ing their numbers by the addition of newly made graduates. That members of the 
class of 1931 may find friends away from home the name and address of some officers 
in each club is given.

HARVARD-YALE day is the day of daj^s for every F. N. S. girl whether she 
is still a student or an alumna. If j'ou are loyal to Harvard j'ou flaunt the 
crimson. If you are loyal to Yale you flaunt the blue. If you don't flaunt 
either, you just don't belong here at F. N. S., that's all. 

Can't 3'ou just see Yale all in blue marching on to the gymnasium led by "Sugar" 
Johnson and her bulldog followed by Harvard's crimson led by "Dot" Nickerson and 
little "Johnny Harvard"? And then when you got into place on your side of the gym- 
nasium, could you find plenty of room for your own feet down among the five hundred 
other pairs of feet as equally restless as your own ? If you could, it was all a dream and 
you never went to a Harvard-Yale basketball game at F. N. S. 

Then pretty soon }ou saw twelve excited, \et anxious looking girls dart on to the 
floor — six in crimson and six in blue. Those were the girls who were to play the game 
and play it squarely to the end, whether they were to win or lose in the attempt to gain 

But when the whistle blew at three o'clock on that ne'er forgotten Saturday after- 
noon in November, didn't you almost hold jour breath for what seemed the shortest 
time in your life, until it was all over, at least as far as Yale was concerned, for Har- 
vard was ahead. 

Needless to say, there were many who were so thrilled that they could scarcely 
contain themselves. Again there were others vt'ho were somewhat disappointed, but 
after all, what difference did it make after their hungry stomachs were filled with the 
delicious turkey and ice-cream of the Harvard-Yale Thanksgiving banquet?

THE annual Harvard-^ ale hockey game took place on Saturday morning, 
November twenty-second. It was on the high school football field on Union 

The rooters and teams marched down to the field, the Harvard girls in red and 
the Yale girls in blue. They lined up on opposite sides of the field and sang and 
cheered throughout the game. Dorothy Nickerson led the Harvard cheers, and Sylvie 
Johnson led the ^ ale cheers. 

The teams lined up, the whistle blew and the game started. Both teams played 
hard. At the end of the first half the score was I-l. 

During the second half ^'ale made two more goals, making the final score 3-1 in 
"bale's favor. 

Both teams played a good game. The Harvard team had as its captain, Lucile 
Poitras, and the Yale team, Gertrude Green. 

After the game, the rooters marched back led by Yale, the victors. 




BASKETBALL receives a great deal of interest on the part of the various 
classes. After Harvard-Yale has long been forgotten, the various classes hold 
practice, and their competition games take place in February and March. 
Division games are played in class time during the same months.

HOCKEIY is one of the most popular sports in the autumn at F. N. S. Of course 
it is the aim of every girl to make either the Harvard or Yale team, but whether 
she does or not she never regrets her time spent in going out to do her best. 
Each class and each division has a team and there is keen competition between the 
■various groups. 





HIS sport seems to be one of the most popular of all sports here at school. 
Even though we have onlj' one tennis court there is hardly a time during the 
tennis season when it is not occupied. 

During the spring and fall, tournaments are held for both singles and doubles 

This 3'ear the double tournament was won bj? Catherine Gray and Eva Yelinek 
and the single tournament by Eva \elinek who received the silver cup which is always 
awarded to the champion. 

Let's all watch to see what the outcome of the future tournaments will be.

"Hilltop News" is a present to Framingham Normal 
from Division C of the Freshman Class. It started, as 
have all famous papers, on a small and simple scale and 
it has a promising future if the students will give it their 
support. It brings various phases of school life to the 
attention of every individual. It makes each girl feel a 
part of the school. Its cost is small, its contributions are 
interesting, and its purpose is worthwhile. The Freshmen 
will welcome any suggestion you have. Let's help them 
out by giving our support. 

Here's to success and long life for "Hilltop News."

Jeannette Creamer, House President 

THE members residing in Horace Mann Hall are very happy to welcome Mr. 
and Mrs. Bagnall to share its home-like surroundings. We sincerely hope that 
Horace Mann Hall will always be as happy a place to our newcomers as it 
has been to us. 

As the evening shadows slowly creep, the bright lights of Horace Mann begin to 
ilash on one by one, indicating busy life within. But these lights are not the only lights 
of this respected dorm. The high lights of happiness are wdthin, sincere friendships, 
thoughtfulness and kindness are shown by all. Oftentimes did our matron, Miss Swan, 
join us in a game of cards or camelot. Miss Robbins was always on hand to render 
untiring service in remedying aches. 

The living room was always supplied with entertainment for all. In the right 
alcove a group was enjoying a game of bridge. By the clock sat two girls puzzling 
over a game of camelot. Ruthie roamed the keys of the piano to the tune of "Doll 
Dance." Occasionally this was followed by a victrola selection to which a fair couple 
strutted to the melody of a waltz. Magazines of all kinds afforded much pleasure read- 
ing — especially "Judge." 



Oh, yes, we did have special time set aside for what w"as known as "study hours" — 
(familiar?) accompanied by rules oftentimes forgotten, though not for long, when the 
sh-h-h of a councillor was echoed down the corridor. 

House meetings were primarily for business settlements, but occasionally it was 
mingled with entertainment when we recall the interesting talk given by Miss Savage 
of her trip abroad, and the Indian guest who was introduced by Miss Swan, and who 
told us of foreign life which was certainly very interesting. 

One could go on and on relating precious experiences shared in this dorm, but 
these few reminders are sufficient to begin our recollection of other accounts not men- 
tioned. So here's to thee, dear Horace Mann ; may our memories e'er lasting be!

Phyllis Rose, President 


A carefree Junior family 
Returning last fall to Crocker Hall, 
Were as "A" and "B" divided. 

As timid teachers, half the class 
Departed for Milford or elsew here "en masse" 
With lesson plans and laden brief-cases 
Determined hearts and "teacher" faces. 

Weary Juniors, nearly all, 
Returning at night to Crocker Hall. 

To "house practice ' remained the rest, 

And each one seemed to do her best 

To cook, to clean, as waitress, hostess, 

And they loved the best, you'd never guess, 

The mighty job of ice cream freezing; 

No one preferred the "garbage house"-cleaning 

Rut compensation they found adequate 

In "menus" and "sperience" they would get. 




But we all got together and decided one day 

To have it all the other way ; 

The teachers to stay at home awhile 

And permit the rest to show their style 

At "methods", little problems and "management" — 

A few of each group appeared to lament. 

And in "home management" those teachers, formerly 

Made brave efforts toward a formal tea ; 

Acquired poise and a gracious manner. 

Or as cooks prayed success for a big dinner. 

A congenial Junior family 

Were happy while living in Crocker Hall ; 

Music and laughter through all the year, 

And the creaking of stairs was evidence we hear. 

Parties, dinners, teas, and "proms" — 

But those joyous days are almost gone, 

And we as this j'ear's Junior family, 

Though we must leave and feel quite sadly, 

We'll always remember old Crocker HalL

PICTURE atop a hill an attractive red brick building, picture in it a comfortable, 
roomy living room, and an office in which sits a willing Miss Keith or Miss Han- 
cock, picture many small but cozy rooms, colorfully and variously furnished, 
picture in these rooms jolly laughing groups of girls — and what do you have? Why 
Peirce Hall, of course ! 

Altho we freshmen experienced a feeling of lonesomeness during the first week 
we were here, that feeling did not last long, for in Peirce Hall reigns a very warm 
and friendly spirit which does not fail to win response. I am sure that in this dormitory 
have kindled many warm friendships which will last not only for the four years we 
spend here, but for many, many years to come. Peirce Hall, I know, will alwajs hold 
a fond place in our hearts. So here's to you, Peirce Hall! 



"Of work and play a goodly part, 
There is a share for each." 

THESE lines are very representative of our life at the Vocational House. 
Although most of our time is occupied with our work, we always find time for 
those friendly homelike songs around the piano, chats with one another, and 
always enjoying informal home atmosphere. 

This year we had three new members added to our family: Sophie, Count Vedi- 
vere, and the very famous Whelk. Ask anyone who has been at the house for further 
information. They seem to be very happy there and we all hope they will decide to join 
our numbers permanently. 

When we are all scattered to all parts of the world we will all recall our days 
spent at 178 Maple Street with decided pleasure. 





i?ichie, our housemother, 
/nspiring and helpful. 
Cake that we adore 
Hot water galore 
At 42 Main Street. 
i?adio is Ruddy 
Dot, Put and Mattie

"Our Gang" 
Nuff se<^. 


We're Jones and Secor, the inseparable pair ; 

Wherever you go we're always there. 

We live at Smith's of 55 Main 

And are always late whether in sunshine or rain. 

We climb the hill with boxes and books 

And don't give a "hang" about our looks; 

Our housemother dear is the nicest ever. 

And with cakes and pies she is mighty clever. 

She's made it seem to us like home 

And no matter how far we'll ever roam 

We'll always remember with thoughts most dear 

The happy times of our Sophomore year. 




R is for ready and also Ruth 
Although that's really not the truth, 
'Cause every day for her we wait 
Always fearing that we'll be late. 

M is for merry and also "Mim," 
The girl who'd like to be awfully thin. 
She diets and walks most every daj^ 
But gets no thinner, so we say. 

L is for laughter and also "Liz," 
Who's always joking wherever she is, 
But when the time comes for a quiz 
Then that's the time the joke's on "Liz. 

Now that's the tale of the happy three, 
Always merry and carefree. 
We do our work and have our sprees, 
Now isn't that the way to be ? 


Haze — quiet, but still waters run deep! 

Mim — her roommate, good times helped to keep. 

Agnes and Flora roomed 'cross the hall. 

While dear Mother Eagan ruled over all. 

Studies had their place, good times, too, 

And of spreads \\e must say there were not a few!

On Goddard Road at the foot of the hill 
Stands the Hart abode with its homey thrill; 
For all of us it's a welcome sight 
As we turn toward it every night. 
For Mrs. Hart is a kindly soul 
And Mr. Hart makes his auto roll. 

Under the roof we have laughter and fun 
While blouses and skirts were gradually done. 
Then our household tasks and radio flights, 
Packing and rushing on Thursday night. 

Ed talks with Boston twice a week, 

And Dot brings back the goodies to eat. 

Mary at English is a shark 

And always gets the highest mark. 

Al at clothing is very smart, 

The week-end gives her a first-rate start. 



MRS. McCarthy's— 58 main street 

To you we will now relate 

What has happened up to date : 

The telephone jingles, up jumps Helen 

And stares while everyone's yellin' ; 

Then comes a honking outside the door, 

Pauline hops up to receive still more ; 

Sunday night and all but one in. 

Who do we expect but our Viola dear. 

Music is not lacking in our home, so sweet, 

For we have in our midst — Jerry, Harmonica Pete. 

When a little mouse appears 

Winnie's screams reach our ears. 

Waj^ from Natick from a show. 

Came Ethel trudging in the snow, 

But not all alone, for Viola was in tow. 

We sure made a lucky strike 

When we found Mac who made things homelike. 

One person whom we can call a friend 

Is Mrs. McCarthy who will serve us to the end. 

To a conclusion we must come 

In hope that others will have as much fun. 


What Would Happen if — 

Miss Barber stopped giving parties? 

Gene didn't bring Dottie back Sunday nights (street cars or otherwise) ? 

Mac didn't rush us up the hill? 

Betty's daily Dartmouth letter didn't come? 

Lil ever paid to go to a theater? 

Mr. Barber quit writing limericks? 

We hadn't received our Jack O'Lantern? 

Lillian and Betty didn't have North Conway and Fryeburg in common? 

We didn't get mysterious telephone calls? 

Madeline ever got to bed at ten ? 

Dotty didn't lose her handkerchieves? 

Dottv and Mad didn't have their "Vic"? 




In the little grey house below the hill 

Live the seven Sophs of the Dunnery, 

Our life this year has been loads of fun ; 

We certainly have been very happy. 

"Rite" and "Bub" — our captains of Harvard fame, 

"Marge" and Arlene — our sweet songsters two, 

"Tops" — our detective and mystery fiend, 

Georgia and "Bill" complete our gay crew. 

But just before the Christmas holiday 

Word came two rooms in the dorm we must iill — 

Poor "Rite" and "Bill" sure hated to leave 

To make their new home up on Normal Hill. 

We kept the telephone line quite busy — 

We gave the drug store plenty of good trade — 

Often the poor bathtub worked over time ; 

You can bet that plenty of noise here is made. 

On Thursdays our rooms and our clothes are cleaned, 

Our bags are all packed — all ready to leave — 

But soon we return — our work to resume ; 

And study, good marks in June to receive. 

We've had one glorious, happy year 

^Vith Mrs. and Miss Dunn, Helen and Ann — 

AVhat fun and good times we all have enjoyed ; 

Good luck to the next of the Dunnery Clan. 




There are two sides to ever}' Junior ; 

No doubt you think it's only rumor, 

But prove it we will — 

If you follow us 'til — 

We disclose the base of the rumor. 


The class, as you probably have been told, 

Is considered aggressive and quite bold. 

And although we try to abide by the rules, 

We express our opinions quite frankly, 'tis true. 

For 'twas thus we acquired our present strong hold 

On the best ; that they cannot from us withhold. 

Then there is the athletic prowess of the Class. 

But the opinion that goes with it — Alas! 

We are the noisiest of all the classes. 

But then ! What is life without fun and laughter ? 

So all through classes and even after 

We laugh and we frolic without any disasters. 

We're scolded and criticized and admonished — we might 

Try to prove our ability, without "dynamite." 

What care we? "It brushes right off." 

For we did as well as any Soph. 

This is our nature three days in the week; 

Of the other two da\s — 

Listen ! ! 

Now we will speak. 


We "grab" our equipment and then we rush 

Down the hill to catch the bus. 

(Sometimes we miss) 

This is the start of the adventurous day — 

When over the class room "We" hold sway. 

The table is turned and we are the teachers 

And 3 ou think it's not half bad being the preacher. 

Comes our turn to say, "Now tell me Mary — 

Is it necessary for you to hurry? 

Why don't you read directions and then go ahead? 

Don't act like a chicken without any head 

And girls take your seats. Leave the room very neat." 

So on until the lesson is complete. 



"Now, Sall.v, tell me wh}- we use fat. 

"Rose and Marie, please stop doing that." 

Then things go along smoothly for awhile 

And you always manage to wear a bright smile. 

Then — suddenly — everything goes amiss — 

And oh — What a heavenly word is — 


These are the two sides to each Junior. 

"Are 5"ou convinced it isn't rumor?" 

"I assure you I am." Here's a right royal hand 

To the class of jolly good Juniors. 

Anna McCarthy. 


A little black kitten 

In a field of gold 

Trying to catch dewdrops; 

I hope not a cold. 

One dainty black paw 

Is outstretched to snare 

A shining rainbow diamond 

Suspended by a hair. 

Ah! He has it! 

But oh! what despair! 

The diamond that fascinated 

Is shattered bejond repair. 

Catherine Gray. 




"Every young girl has a college 

About which she loves to tell"; 

Has every young girl a SMILE — 

That she never would want to sell ? 

A SMILE that always will bear 

All hardships so strong 

And cares that come as daj's go along ; 

A SMILE quite sincere, 

A SMILE quite so true 

That wherever you go 

And whatever j-ou do 

Your SMILE has meant 

The whole world to vou !

Twang ! went the strings of the tennis racket, and over the fence soared our fourth 
— our last tennis ball. 

"I wish I'd never taught you to play tennis! It's about time you tamed that serve 
of yours. Darn, now we've got to waste perfectly good time finding them when we 
could be playing tennis. Why don't you invent boomerang tennis balls? Betty, you 
go that way; Annis, j'ou go this way, while Sophie and I will find the two in the middle 
of the gladiolus." 

Annis crawled through the hole in the wire fence, and after meandering through 
milkweed and raspberry bushes retrieved one lone ball, while Betty, over in the 
sumachs, met with little success. 

Sophie and I craviled over the peas and tomatoes, keeping one eye open for Dr. 
Meier, and reached the gladiolus. After picking up innumerable apples and tomatoes, 
I finally found one red ball. Tossing it over to Annis, it turned to ketchup on meeting 
her hands. Words could not describe the disgust registered on Annis' face. 

We finally picked out the two right "tomatoes" and adjourned to the tennis 
court, contentedly munching apples, and inwardly raging at the thought of our good 
ball lost. 

"What was the score, Sophie?" 

"How should I know?" 

"Oh, pardon me, I thought }'-ou were official scorekeeper. My mistake. We'll call 

What are those girls doing with rackets, and coming this way? We have the court 
for two hours. Oh, I suppose they're part of the tennis tournament. And all my 
struggles to get the tennis sign-up are for naught. Oh well, goodby tennis court for 
todaj^ See you tomorrow if it doesn't rain." 

Florence C. Irvin. 




Lu: "Is this the way the}' do it at Miss Farmer's?" 

Bergie: "And I have to be careful about whipped cream because it contains so 
many calories." 

Ethel E. : Whose duty is it to — ? 

Dot G. : Silver is to be placed not thrown. 

Knoxie : Perhaps she will learn where those order slips are kept. 

Kay : Starch when hydrolyzed becomes sugar — Lemon Tart Filling. 

Dot : To the — belong the spoils. 

Green and Britt were cleaning out the warming oven before Harvard-Yale 

Britt: And they told us to save ourselves for the game. 

What a glorious feeling of abandon in riding horseback. 

Yes — I usually get abandoned but I see nothing glorious about it. 

Didn't some one bring John Brown's Body to class? 
No, we don't run a mortuary here. 

Bright girl : Oh Kay ! Wonder what cotton gin tastes like. 

Pupil: Oh, Mith Macallithter, will you hang my coat upon the "hang"-nail? 

First senior : Did you pass the psych exam ? 

Second senior (a repeater in Junior psych) : Sure— Say, what do you think I am?

Mr. Archibald: Why were you late for class, Miss Doneilo? 

Winnie: I was dreaming I was going to California and the bell was on the train 
on which I was going. 

Mr. Archibald: ^ ou did, eh? And now Miss Leavitt, what have you to say? 

Sally: I was just waiting to see Winnie off. 

Grace Silvy (out on back hill explaining 'a new game to Sr. B) : If any member 
of the opposing team calls your number from his side of the field, you must be a dead 
man immediately. Drop just where you are and lie still. 

Ten minutes later came an agonized whisper from Margaret North : Can't I 
move now? I'm a dead man, but I'm on an ant hill! 

Helen Mason (teaching history of the silkworm, wrote 1500 B. C. on the board) : 
What does B. C. mean ? Yes, William. 

William : Boston College. 

Marion McAuley (teaching class of monotones in music) : Johnnie, sing up high 
like this, do (extremely high). 

Johnnie : I can't squeak like that. 


F. N. S. has a unique arrangement in its Chem Council — the Honor System. 
Each girl is put on her honor all the time she is in chem class to be strictly honest. In 
other academic subjects there are instructors present to insure honesty among students, 
not only during exams but also during recitations. The girl's inherent honesty seems 
to crop up and keep her balanced in club work and in nonacademic affairs with the 
exception of one thing — Men!! There they seem to adopt the policy "All's fair in love 
and war." If I happen to want your man and can get him it's just too bad for you. 
How I get him doesn't matter. Then if you decide you want him back again and you 
get him, the laugh is on the other side of the face. Once more how you get him doesn't 
matter. In the meanwhile perhaps he isn't so dumb he doesn't know that "something 
is in the air." Maybe he'll play the game for a while but if he is worth the powder to 
blow him up, he'll probably quit us both flat. If he continues to play the game and be 
the toy of every woman's whim, I don't want him, you can have him. He isn't worth 
the effort to hold him. Eel. 




Carolyn Jones went to the supply closet for some tailor's tacks? 
There were once some freshmen who didn't dare go thru the door marked 
"Showers — Keep Out"! 

Brooksie once got a clothing problem in on time? 

A freshman became quite concerned for fear the bugler would get caught? 


"I'm Alone Because I Love You" because "The Man Who Came Back" "Just 
Couldn't Be Bothered With Me" so "Don't Forget Me In Your Dreams." "I'm 
Dancing With Tears In My Eyes" because "You Brought a New Kind of Love to 
Me" and 3'ou're "Just a Gigolo." "Go Home and Tell Your Mother" "Maybe It's 
Love" because "You're Driving Me Crazy" "Swinging in a Hammock" "Singing a 
Song to the Stars." "Give Yourself a Pat on the Back" because "I'm Confessing That 
I Love You" in "Saint James Infirmary." "I'll Be Blue Just Thinking of You" 
"Across the Breakfast Table." "I Still Get A Thrill" because "There's Danger in 
Your Eyes." "If I Could Be With You One Hour Tonight" "Sweetheart of My 
Student Days" I'd never be "Blue Again." 

Here's "A Cheerful Little Earful" "To Whom It May Concern." 


Dear Faithful, 

You've helped me out of lots of troubles and now I need you again. I want a 
man for the coming dance — I also want one for my girl friend. Now you wouldn't 
mind getting us some, would you? We're not fussy although, of course, we want 
good looking and respectable fellows. We prefer them tall, one a blonde and the other 
a brunette. Remember, we don't want any college freshmen — we want seniors that 
have made scholastic and athletic records. Don't you know some of the football players? 
Be sure that they are not engaged or have steady girls because we do not desire any 
civil wars or revolutions. They need not have money but they must have a car — you 
know, a snappy Packard or something good looking. If they don't send us flowers to 
wear, there'll be a war so put them wise. Of course, we expect them to take us home 
afterwards even though we live in Springfield and they do come from Boston. Don't 
you think they would love to come? I forgot to say that they must go to the same 
church I do and don't get any peculiar names. I knew you wouldn't mind. Thanks 
so much. 

Your pal, 





One morning a Horace Mann Senior awoke at 7 o'clock, found all her clothes 
Vvith ease, and entered Peirce in plenty of time to enjoy a hearty breakfast of waffles 
and pure maple sirup. 

Upon entering May Hall's portals after a brisk jaunt from the dorm, she found 
that two of her classes were to be omitted — quite a coincidence, as our little friend had 
not bothered to prepare for those subjects. At 12:15 our heroine had no difficulty in 
satisfying a very hearty appetite as she had steak and strawberry shortcake for her 
luncheon. Because of the irregularity in the periods, the flustered teachers neglected 
to assign any work for the week-end. Down in the student's room two fat letters were 
awaiting her. 

Well, folks, this is station F. O. B. To-morrow night our kind friend. Nurse 
Jane Fuzzy, will oblige us with another fairy bedtime story. Signing off — goodnight. 

Sally Leavitt. 

Mary Altimus (discussing one glorious week-end) : Well, Cappy, do you love 
that Southerner still? 

Cappy Bruen (toute de suite) : Yes, but he's a thousand times better in action. 

Miss Knox: Why, Gertrude, do you think that's the best hemstitching you can do? 
Gertrude: Oh, Miss Knox, that's your sample. 

Imagine Mim's embarrassment when Miss Hall, raising the coffee pot at the 
Sunday morning breakfast table, poured hot water. 

In rolling pastry according to Bea White you should always roll from center front 
to center back. 

Dreamy music 

Balmy air

What else could I do ? 




Br-r-ring! Br-r-ring! A dash! and down through the dismal hall fly the frenzied 
lines. A push, a nudge, and one more person is elbowed out of the way. Voices grow 
to cries, cries to shouts. Now the members of the mob stumble, regain their balance, 
and dash on. A look of tense excitement is on ever\' face. Each individual strives to 
get ahead, regardless of the luckless ones he knocks down as he progresses. All is con- 
fusion. A fire? Mercy, no! Only the daily rush to the lunch-room. 

Mrs. Nichols: Would you like to be judged by the first third of j^our life? 

Fran Metcalf : Sure, we were only babies then. 

Helen Paul (giving a Foods Demonstration gets crumbs in the icing and calls 
out to Miss French) : "Oh, Miss French, what'll I do? 

Miss French: That's your little problem! 


Jeannette Creamer (at house meeting) : Instead of going into the office and get- 
ting ash trays, your escorts are putting all their ashes on that one plant. What are 
we going to do about it ? 

Annie Birdsall (the heroine at the psychological moment) : Get More Plants! 


Alarian Byrnes without her smile? 
Doris Campbell minus her drawl ? 
Winifred Doneilo without her sphinx-like expression ? 
Dorothy Macallister without her facial expressions?

Horace Mann Hall quiet? 

The head waitress frantically looking for gravy for a late faculty dinner heating 
it only to find that it's applesauce? 

Helen Everitt (at Sunday night lunch) : What does this mean — a fly in the 
bottom of my tea-cup ? 

Peggy Moran: How do I know? Em a waitress, not a fortune teller. 

M. Moir : The first thing I ever sent to a magazine was accepted. 

H. Pickard: You don't say! Was it poetry or prose? 

Margaret : Prose. It was a check for a year's subscription. 

Mary Toledo (after giving a talk in English) : Do you think they liked my. talk? 

Bessie B. : Yes, I think so. They were all nodding. 

Betty Riber (trying to be emphatic with a group of children gathered around her 
desk) : Every one of you take my seat and take it quickly. 

Dr. Aleier (after roll call told the class to go to work) : "Wait just a minute! I 
have something to say. If I hadn't thought of it I would have forgotten it." 




1-2-3-4 Up; and up sat four pajama clad figures. 1-2-3-4 Down; and like automa- 
tons the four figures again lay down. 

Silence lay over the roof-top and the Gibson Girl gazed down on a silent unbroken 
stretch of mattresses for a space of fifteen seconds. 

The solitude was broken by a voice as a figure sat up in i bed. "I don't like the 
idea of being under these trees. I hate ants and caterpillars." 

"Look out, there's one on your pillow ! " 

"Eeeek — Gee, I think you're mean fooling me with a piece of twig. That's no 

"Will you nuts let a hard-working girl sleep?" 

"Oh, some people have no sense of humor." 

"Let's go bye-bye." 

Chorus: "O.K." 
Later : 

'What's in that corner?" 

"Do you see someone? It might be Miss Keith." 

"Maybe it's a ghost!" 

A voice from a corner. "Oh, shut up, it's only a shadow." '^ 

Another smothered sound from under a cover — "Is it time to get up yet?" 

No, be still; it's only one o'clock." 

"Aw-gee-whiz, I can't sleep. I wish it was morning. I wonder what we'll have 
for breakfast." 

About 2 A.M. a bewildered figure arose sleepily and squinted at the now hazy 
moon. "Hey, Bet, don't you think it's going to rain?" The only answer she received 
was a snore as the three musketeers turned over on their sides. "Oh, I know it's going 
to rain. Either you're sprinkling saliva or it's raining, 'cause I felt something wet on 
my face. It is raining. I'm going in." 

A bent and broken figure passed slowly by, carrying a mattress on her girlish 
shoulders. "Pip-pip — I'll be popping" said she as she hit her nose against the hard door. 

After that all slept peacefully until the breakfast bell rang. 






I was washing my clothes. The basket weighed a ton. We went for a ride into 
the valley. We watched the blacksmith at his forge. 

He got on his mount and rode away with Vernon. 

The egg was in the nest. The hen will hatch it. 

Which dress will Delia ivearf 

The blacksmith tried to press a dent out of a pan. 

"I bet he could win," cried Ross. 

"Cheerio," he called from the tree top. 

George threw the ball father than any of his country men. 

The pot o' Macdixom cooked slowly. 

There was no commander' n an Indian chief on board the ship. 

I once knew a girl named Martha \\\\o helped her mother hang up the washing 
even tho' the basket weighed a ton. 

"Booty" wants a book on "How to Get Along on $100 a Year (with maintenance) 
to help her in her future position. 

Stern male parent: I've never seen a report card like this before. Aren't you 
ashamed of yourself ? 

Female offspring: Why, no. Dad. You promised me ten dollars if I brought home 
a good card and knowing business conditions, I thought I'd economize for you. 

Mary Kelley: Have you ever done any public speaking? 

Helen Mason : Why, yes, I once asked a boy to a dance over the paj' station

My suggestion is — 

We are what we are because of the land in which we live. 

This is all extra — there's no charge. 

Gee, whiz, girls, and you are candidates for the B.S. degree. 

Do you know the meaning of all the words j^ou use ? 

R-A-I-S-E H-A-N-D-S 

Ease it in. 

Hmm —Well ! 

Talking through our hats is a favorite indoor sport of the American people. 

My middle name is definite! 

Who are we ? 

Who are we? 

We're the girls 

In chemistry. 

Are we fragrant ? 

Well, I guess ; 

We've been making HoS. 



Perhaps you remember that Millie Sullivan was a homesick little girl when she 
first came to F. N. S. Miss Swan thought perhaps there was no senior to acquaint her 
with our spacious grounds and asked: "Mildred, have you a big sister?" 

Millie: "Yes, I have six and I guess that's why I'm so homesick."

Which one is which when a man is beside himself ? 

What is it that clouds steal across the sky? 

What happens to the pieces when the day breaks ? 

Who picks up the night when it falls ? 

Does the plot always thicken ? 

Why are shelves of books always in tiers ? 


Two lessons and j'ou can have all the pretty clothes j^our heart desires. 
Lesson one: Take a dart wherever necessary to make your clothes fit. 
Lesson two : Ease in the fulness betvveen the darts. 



If it isn't seams and darts 
It's cattle and carts 
That go to the marts. 

When we arrive in Chicago 
To the marts we must go 
To see the farmers' cargo. 

Sheep, cattle, and swine 

Gathered for your profit and mine ; 

On them sooner or later we'll dine. 

Swine, cattle and sheep 
Mustn't fall in a heap 
So farmers lose their sleep. 

Swine, cattle, and sheep 
Also keep seniors from sleep 
So they won't fall in a heap. 

D. Young. 

With bated breath I surveyed the land, 

Controlled with an effort my palsied hands. 

Familiar became the scenes about ; 

Now's the time — I must get out. 

Slowly to my feet I rose, 

Heard a sound like blowing nose ; 

In the nick of time a rail I grabbed ; 

With terror was my system stabbed. 

Forward now to grope my way 

On the tricky path that before me lay, 

Shapeless forms went whizzing by 

And I thought that down I soon should lie. 

A rush — a jerk — and then a pause ; 

Down I stepped and then because 

The B. and W. away from me tracked 

I heaved a sigh that with relief was packed.

Miss Gardener: What do clams live on? 
Pupil: Sand. 

Miss G. : Where did you find that? 
Pupil : In our text book. 
Miss G. : Show me where. 

Pupil shows Miss G. the book. "In olden times ignorant people thought that 
clams lived on sand."

M. L.: Yeah? 

L. M. : Got stuck on some chewing gum. 




With whom do 30U say you wish to speak? 
To some girl called Miss Mary MaLeak? 
Why, yes, just a moment and I will see 
Just where that girl you want can be. 

No, I can't find her. Any message to give? 

What ? My name ? Not as you live ! 

Why, I'm just one of a hundred here ; 

But — if 30U insist — Will you speak more clear? 

I said I'm called ]\Iiss Jennie Wren, 
Now, will you tell me your name then ? 
Call 5'ou Bennie ? O. K. by me ; 
Please hurry and make it snappy. 

A date you say? Why 30U don't know me. 
Do you stop to think what I may be ? 
You like me by my voice, j'ou say ; 
Well, let's call it ol¥ for today. 
I said, "Let's call it off — don't you hear? 
No, you'll never get me out, don't fear. 

You say you'll come at half past nine? 
Now, really, wouldn't that be fine? 
And blow your horn two times you say? 
Blow ten times and you'll get chased away. 

S' long. 

OH! OH!

A cow is a square or a wedge-shaped animal. It may be almost any color. For 
variety it may be speckled — speckles must be well distributed, however, in order to 
insure good flavor. The cow may be good for milk, or good for meat. Be sure it is 
good for one or the other or it will be put into a tin can. This is mean to the cow and 
not recommended by the Humane Society. The cow might even be a dual-purpose like 
a dish mop that turns out to be a poodle. Be sure you feel of the cow before buying. 
This may result in your being laid low by the hind legs of said cow which shows up the 
bad disposition of it. In any case be sure to be nonchalant. It is well not to light a 
Murad or such at this point for that and flunking are the most fool-proof methods of 
being eliminated from daily roll call. So much for cows. Our suggestion is that under 
any circumstances you continue ordering from your local bottled milk deliverer.
